H.R. 2769: Risk-Based Capital Study Act of 2015

Title: Risk-Based Capital Study Act of 2015

Introduced: Jun 15, 2015 (114th Congress)

Sponsor: Rep. Stephen Lee Fincher [R-TN8]

Status: Reported by Committee - Ordered to be Reported by the Yeas and Nays: 50 - 9.

Summary: Risk-Based Capital Study Act of 2015 This bill directs the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) to study the appropriate capital requirements for federal credit unions and state credit unions, including: whether the NCUA has the clear legal authority to prescribe separate risk-based capital thresholds for both "adequately capitalized" and "well capitalized" credit unions; a discussion of the differences between credit unions and other types of depository institutions and reasons why they should have similar or different risk-weights for their capital requirements; a discussion of the rationale behind the risk-weights assigned in the proposed NCUA rule "Risk-Based Capital"; and an analysis of the impact the proposed rule would have upon excess capital above the minimum level for a credit union to be "well capitalized" (a credit union's "capital cushion"), including the potential impact upon credit union lending and credit union examinations. A credit union may not be required to provide information regarding the capital standards sought in the NCUA study, but may provide it voluntarily. The NCUA may not issue or implement any final rule or regulation governing risk-based capital (including the proposed rule) earlier than 120 days after it reports to Congress on the study.
